WHY WE STOCK THIS:
Schoppel is a German brand and as such adheres to the great policies of the EU, including replacing ALL of it's Nylon with Biodegradable Nylon!

Cotton is a particularly difficult one for us- there are tons of places that do cotton for cheap, but it's not organic or sustainable which means it's not good for the planet or the people harvesting it, which means we wouldn't feel good about ordering it in. We were thrilled to see this organic cotton that's produced in Greece!
A unique project that combines sustainability, transparency, traceability and quality from the cotton seed to the finished yarn. A sensational and sustainable solution for the textile supply chain. Guaranties a complete production in Greece.
